Luanda – Some Angolan companies in the wood industry are representing the country, from 8 to 13 of this month, at the 58th International Furniture, Equipment and Interior Decoration Fair, that is taking place in the capital of the Republic of Serbia, Belgrade.
The same event, which brings together over 200 companies from 20 countries, is also hosting the 58th International Fair on Machinery and Tools for the Cabinetry Industry.
Among the companies that represent Angola are ENDUMAD and SODOFIL-LDA, which operate in the wood exploration, export and transformation sector.
According to the Chairman of the Angolan-Serbian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Massunga Henriques, their participation in the event aims to promote and attract investment to Angola by publicising abroad the economic potential of the sector.
The official said that the Angola’s exhibition pavilion has been visited by hundreds of visitors and exhibitors seeking information and business opportunities, as they recognised the value and quality of national wood.
For this reason, the Angolan Embassy in the Republic of Serbia has set up a booklet with all the necessary information about Angola´s potential in this sector.
According to the organisation, the Belgrade Furniture Fair provides an opportunity to get in touch with the latest furniture trends and design-oriented companies.
On the sidelines of the event, the Angolan delegation, under the supervision of representatives of the Angolan embassy in Belgrade, made contact with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Serbia, with which it analysed ways of collaborating, complementing and promoting business between entrepreneurs from the two countries.
This event is the largest regional meeting and annually brings together the largest and best institutions, companies, corporations and professionals dealing with woodworking materials and the furniture industry in eastern Europe.
Since its establishment in 1963, the “Belgrade Furniture Fair” has been the venue for the promotion of all renowned manufacturers from the region and Europe, presenting their state of the art products, collections and furniture design trends, retaining old contacts, establishing new ones and exchanging information.
For this year, Belgrade Furniture Fair will welcome some of the leading regional and global furniture producers and designers from Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, USA, Austria, Germany, Italy, Poland and Turkey.
